  1. Hi Jim. Any of those photos would beat my plain army green desktop. Guess I’m just a plain guy. Really liked the Mount Shasta photo in California. Daniel.

  2. Thanks for this link, Jim.
    Must say I still tend to place shortcuts on the main screen and not “pin to taskbar.”
    God knows why..but I do.
    And my previous wallpaper was a multi-coloured pix. of Sydney Harbour which while looking lovely it did manage to hide most of my shortcuts. They disappeared at times..well became camouflaged within the mighty scene !!
    I was always having to search for the required program and drag out a shortcut only to see that it was named “shortcut2” !! The original turning up from within the Opera house or Harbour Bridge!!
    Anyway..I’ve now downloaded a nice blue winters scene from the site you mentioned and lo and behold many old shortcuts are now visible, reappearing from the ether!!
    So thanks for that. I now have an easier desktop to see and a tidier one too.
